A stylish new gal moved into my little abode recently.
Welcome home, missy!
I bought her because my kitchen and counter is very small and she fits on my counter just right, next to her Cuisinart cousins, unlike my former bigger Crockpot that was heavy to lift and cumbersome to wash so I took him to the animal shelter donation place since I like to recycle.
Little Miss Stylish Crockpot effortlessly made me this Easy Apple Coconut Compote.
Together with my favorite coffee, it's a double yum!
And add just one velvety purple orchid to my antique table for aesthetic beauty, and make that a triple yum.
It's always the little enjoyable things in life that thrill me the most. :)
My favorite coconut milk on top was the...healthier version of...cream. It's even the consistency of dairy cream.
I brought out my pretty etched glassware too for my little compote party for one.
Why not?! Life is too short to eat from boring bowls, don't you think?!
You can buy little Miss Stylish Crockpot here if you want one for your kitchen too.
Easy Apple Coconut Compote
NOTE: I use all organic ingredients in my recipes because, well...I don't like to eat pesticides.
6 apples, cored and chopped into pieces
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup quick oats (not instant)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup pecans (or 1/2 cup of just one nut type if you prefer)
1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries (optional)
2 T. melted coconut oil
1/2 -1 T. cinnamon
- Put apples, raisins, and nuts in Crockpot.
- In a bowl, combine coconut, quick oats, brown sugar, melted coconut oil and cinnamon well with a spoon. Pour mixture into Crockpot and stir well to coat all the apples thoroughly.
- Turn Crockpot on low and bake until apples are tender. I baked mine overnight on low and achieved perfect results and taste.
Serve compote warm with coconut milk on top for an added creamy-silky treat.
